Anyone Who Said 'Carpet' Was Half Right...

His name is Jack. :)

I had my first unofficial driving lesson today. I stalled it too many times to count, went into second gear and went around two road islands about 8 times... x.x;;

I don't feel like I'm doing so well, although apparently I'm doing quite well for someone who's never driven before. Must get better!

I went at about 25MPH, but I had my foot pressed a little too hard on the accelerator. ^_^;

I think mum's boyfriend wanted to get me to around 4th or 5th gear in that lesson, but after an hour I asked if we could stop, because my hands were starting to shake... (Although I didn't admit that!)

He said though at the start of my lesson that in your first lesson you're commonly taught to move up through the gears to 5th... but then he told me that people are taught to drive around islands in their first lesson, and afterwards confessed that he'd lied about that...

I'm so glad it was on a private road at work! -_-;;; I'd have been a menace to other drivers had I been on the public roads...
